Four Courses! French Wine! Signature Cocktail! Your evening begins at 6pm with a Baywater Signature Cocktail and Hors d’oeuvres. Browse the Silent Auction and bid on your favorite items. The four-course wine pairing dinner blending Italian Nouvelle Cuisine with wines from the French Countryside begins at 7pm. A live auction adds to the fun.

Chef Massimo Bebber comes from a food-loving Italian family in Northern Italy. He began his apprenticeship as a teenager working in several restaurants in Italy and then coming to New York to cook for Cipriani.  Chef Bebber became the first Italian executive chef at the renowned French restaurant, Le Cirque, in NYC.   Now back as Executive Chef at Cipriani’s, Bebber blends his love of Italian food with the elegance of French Nouvelle Cuisine.

“Both Chef Tondin and Chef Bebber share their lives with their dogs and are animal lovers.  We’re honored that they have teamed up to bring this fabulous meal to the Eastern Shore to help raise funds for the animals.” said Tom Divilio, president Baywater Animal Rescue.

Baywater Animal Rescue is the leading no-kill animal shelter on the Eastern Shore.  We are celebrating more than 70 years serving Dorchester County. Every one of our animals requires medical care while waiting for their forever family to bring them home. Some even need surgery! Additionally, the buildings that house the more than 70 cats we are caring for desperately needed upkeep.  60 years of hard winters and hot summers have taken their toll.  Baywater is completely dependent upon donations and events like this to support the work that we do.

Come out for a fantastic night and help Baywater Animal Rescue create more Happy Endings for homeless animals. Funds raised at this event go specifically to the medical, surgical and housing needs of our animals.

Space is limited. Buy your tickets online today at Reserve your seat by March 21. We sold out early in both 2016 and 2017!
